Do you two like to play games? What about the sexy kind? There are times in every couple's life when you may desperately need to have one or two adult games around to spice things up. I can think of one instance in particular: When you're feeling trapped in a "romantic" place in the middle of nowhere, the TV reception is terrible, the wi-fi is worse, and it's raining. If that ever happens to you, I hope you've packed one or more of the following sexy games that are made for grown-up couples to play. You may find that they're so much fun and so seductive that you plan game nights at home.
Even as adults, any games where you tumble down laughing together are good ones. Couples will see that the box for this classic game contains a spinner and a plastic mat marked with colored circles. Spin the dial and move a hand, finger, elbow, knee, toe or foot to the colored circle on the floor mat. According to the official rules, a referee is supposed to spin the spinner. When just two play, adjust the rules so that the last person has to make the spinner reachable by his opponent. We're not sure what constitutes winning -- but does it really matter when you're having so much fun?
The board design resembles a love knot, and based on the thousand-year-old Indian love manual, The Kama Sutra Game may inspire couples to get wrapped up sensually in each other's limbs. Pick a card and follow the instructions -- share a secret, touch an erogenous zone, assume a position. This adult game is for two only.
Chocolate plus a game to play? Not since hydrogen and oxygen merged to form water have two more essential elements united. So put aside your anniversary edition of the "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and oompah-loompah this game, which is a delicious interpretation of Monopoly. Added bonus of playing Strip Chocolate-opoly when you are away from home: Someone else ends up washing the sticky, gooey sheets. Who wins? He or she who devours the most chocolate, of course.

How well do you really know your partner? Sometimes it's difficult to tease out those personal details face-to-face. If you'd like to know more about your loved one, try using this to pry loose some history.
This is one of those games for adults you'll need to invite another couple over to play. If you've ever seen the circa-70s TV reruns, you know this game of "how-well-do-I-really-know-my-partner" is a hoot. Questions range from silly to salacious. Hack it by agreeing beforehand that every answer that requires a color is "blue" and any room you need to name is "kitchen."
